Remember Carrier Command? Rage did. They remembered it so well they stripped it down, sexed it up and released it in the form of 2001's Hostile Waters. But without any way to create custom content and no multi-player, despite it's brilliance the game lacked longevity. Not any longer.
Using Valve Software's Source technology Hostile Waters is back: back with new graphics, new multi-player, new ideas and new expandability.

Features:

  • Compelling script by Warren Ellis
  • The voices of Tom Baker, Glynis Barber and Paul Darrow
  • Heart-stopping action
  • Unique, powerful interface allowing the command and control of up to ten vehicles
  • - Picture-in-picture helps the player monitor vehicles tasks and progress
    - Control units in 3rd person action modes as well as traditional top-down real-time strategy mode

  • Land, sea and air units
  • Comprehensive in-game tutorials
  • Over 20 missions including stealth, brute force and cunning
  • NEW: Huge graphical, AI, physics and animation improvements while keeping the same visual style
  • NEW: The ability to create custom content including vehicles and islands
  • NEW: An expansive multi-player element including:
  • - A Halo 2-style team/clan-centred 'join game' interface alongside the more traditional server list method
    - Multiple gametypes: deathmatch, carrier/team deathmatch, assault, etc.
    - Customisable vehicles, from weaponry and armour to colour highlights and decals
    - Co-op mode against the computer both on pre-existing single-player and new, dedicated islands

You can download the demo for Hostile Waters retail at Gamershell and get a decent idea of what's coming. This project has the full support of all IP holders.

When Rage went under a lot of superb material disappeared from the public domain. Thankfully it is not all lost. We've dug up several promotional files:

  • An information pamphlet on the game, perhaps intended for a trade show such as E3 or ECTS. Note that some story elements had changed by the time the game was released.
  • The keyboard configurations. We will use the same layout.
  • A screensaver. It's not great but gives useful background information (some of which was never seen in the game) and the preferred weaponry of each Soulcatcher chip.

It's also been compared to Total Annihilation, Terra Nova, Carrier Command of course, and even Jagged Alliance. A frightening list to live up to. ;)
